Maryland Bridal Shower

We arrived back in Charlotte last night after a wonderful weekend in Maryland at my parents.  Kevin's parents and we flew up there on Thursday afternoon for the long weekend.

On Friday, the 4 of us went to Annapolis for the day.  We had lunch at Boatyard which was amazing.  Thank you to EAS for the wonderful recommendation.  Yall know I had Maryland Crab Soup and a Soft Shell Crab sandwich!

Friday night, my friend Lindsay planned a get together at Market Street Inn!  My MOH, Kelly drove up to Maryland with her husband, Brett.  Here they are..

Lindsay and her fiance, Vlad drove down from Philadelphia.

The 6 of us had a big time catching up and visiting together!  I love my Lindsay and Kelly!  And their boys of course!

Hi BFFs!

The 6 of us.  I should have used some red eye removal, ha. 

Okay onto the shower now!  It was held at this wonderful mansion called Poplar Hill!

My friend Sara and her Mom hosted it!  Let me tell yall - it was an amazing event!  Here is the guest book and favors - cocktail napkins.  And of course the sticker on it matched the invitation.  The invitation and stickers are from Wedding Paper Divas.

Everything was perfect.

Aren't the flowers stunning?  

This was the appetizer table in one of the rooms.  


The cake - SO good!  And right up my alley right?!

Back to the appetizer table.  Crab dip of course! :)

Lindsay, Sara and I.

My parents neighbor, Mrs. Black.  She has watched me grow up literally from when Mom was pregnant with me.

My high school girls!  Lindsay came from Philly, Sara came from NYC and Ashley came from Raleigh - all for the shower!  Ahh I'm so lucky to have such awesome friends!

With the Mamas!

With the hostesses!  They did such a wonderful job!  Everyone was just gushing about how nice it was!  

My Dad came and loaded up his car with all of the gifts.  I, once again, was overwhelmed with everyone's generosity.  Thank you, thank you!

One of my high school teachers and I.  We are friends now instead of teacher/student.  She is coming to Charlotte for my wedding!!!!

Thank you again to everyone for the wonderful shower, especially Sara and her Mama!  I'm fortunate to have such old friends that when we all get together, we go back to how we always were.  Time never feels like it passed!

Stay tuned for the cocktail party that happened on Saturday night!
